Your University of Georgia Bulldogs ended the 2019 season with a W in the storied Sugar Bowl on the first day of 2020. The Classic City Canines went down to the Big Easy to face the Big 12’s Baylor Bears and took a 3 point lead in the first quarter. By the end of the first half the lead was up to 19-0. The Bears rallied in the 3rd quarter but he Bulldogs never relinquished their lead and when time expired the final score was 26 to 14.

It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Bulldog Football Wins whenever and wherever they occur. The ugliness of any particular win is irrelevant for the purposes of the Winning Smart Victory Post.

It is therefore my deepest honor and privilege to bring to you this week’s edition of: The Winning Smart Victory Post.

Coach Kirby Smart coached his 56th game tonight for the Red & Black. He currently boasts a 44-12 record and a 0.7857 winning percentage, having carded his forty-fourth win overall over the Baylor Bears in the 2019 Sugar Bowl.

At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 56th game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldog win over the Clemson Tigers early in the 1969 season. Giving Coach Dooley a record of 40-13-3 and 0.7411 percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 46-10 (0.8214) after beating Mississippi State in the 2005 season.

Fifty six games into his head coaching career Kirby Smart is two games behind Coach Mark Richt and ahead of Coach Vince Dooley by 2 1/2 games. As of now, he is holding his own versus the two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.

As always . . .

Go ‘Dawgs !!!
